Orbit® 3 Digital Probes with In Line Connector
Product Announcement from Ametek Solartron Metrology
The in line connector can be mounted close to the probe so that the probe can be replaced without having to unthread/thread the cable. It can also be mounted on the Probe Interface Electronics (PIE) module.
Solartron Metrology uses a dedicated digital probe which has much better screening for magnetic and electrical immunity. The in line connector feature allows flexibility while maintaining a very high resolution, excellent linearity and a high data speed of the Orbit® 3 system. Probes can be replaced without any reprogramming of the controlling software.
Small diameter of the connector allows easier threading through a machine for replacement. It has a lightweight, corrosion resistant glass reinforced thermoplastic body, with IP67 protection against dust and water ingress
